abstract = {Despite the portability and platform-independence of Java programs, their performance depends on the threading mechanisms of the host operating system. In this paper, we measure the performance of Java threads for two different multi-threading implementations, Linux Thread and Green Thread, using PersonalJava (TM) on a Linuxbased platform. The experimental results show the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two threading mechanisms with respect to synchronization overhead, I/O efficiency, and thread control.},
